File alongside Roger Waters' Music from The Body and Stevie Wonder's Journey Through the Secret Life of Plants - it's kind of new agey and nothing like my expectations at all. Have no qualms, this album is very 'musical' and a much more sonorous affair than Lennon's first three solo offerings.
Don't be put off by the notion that it is all Indian music either. It is amazing how well the Indian pieces blend with the quirky western styles of tracks such as Drilling a Home and Cowboy Music. 'Crying' sounds remarkably like its subject matter and shows some good humour too. We were denied the chance to hear McCartney's 'Carnival of Light' on the Beatles' Anthology because Harrison wasn't so keen on sound collages, but listening to the Dream Scene, he clearly wasn't far off here. Above all this music is very relaxing.
If you have All Things Must Pass and couldn't really get into Harrison's later material, this might just be the perfect companion to it. The only trouble is you could probably buy your own sitar for the average price of this CD. Oh, our materialistic western ways!
